The Love Bug
I've been on the 'net for over 8 years now, and I still find it wierd that when I get to work in the morning, most of the US have gone to bed!

Funnily enough I don't really think about it! I guess it's because my parents are out there (5 hours behind) and so is my sister (8 hours behind) so I always have to consider it when making a phone call to them.

Something I learnt in school that was actually useful - "I before E except after C and when something is weird". ;)

I will have been on the net for 8 years soon too :oD

Makes me feel like a right geek does that ;oP

We had netcomplete as our first internet thing, with a new 33.6k modem ;oD
it cost like £15 a month + phone calls or something silly ;o)
I remember it well, and want a retro trip, but it refuses to let me use the software without a sign in name and password :oP

I started with CompuServe (text only mode) with a 300 baud modem.

That was hard!!! LOL

That's about when and how I started too. The text scrolled on so slowly, that you could almost have it read before it was completed printing to the screen. We've surely come a long way since then!
